At the top right of the forum page you will see a toggle for Members. Click on it and follow the directions to search.

Or if they are active on the board you can click on the nick to read the profile.
Or you can do the same on/in any post the nick is displayed.

Simply the nick they/he/she choose to use. Like me or others here.

Why did you pick Yodar44?
